    So now that everyone knows who this guy is, what do we all potentially think his role might be, or what sort of character do we all hop he'll play?

    I think he will be the equivalent of what George St. Pierre was in the Winter Solider. Just some guy to do fancy flips and say a few lines. Then our heroes come punch him in the face and look awesome.

    Han & Leia's youngest son, the equivalent to the EU's Anakin Solo, is my best guess.

    Most likely a glorified stunt man, like a Ray Park ( I mean that in the most appreciative way possible). Someone who can be a badass and bring some athleticism to some fight scenes, but not given too much to do in terms of acting.

    Maybe a background jedi in training? One of the rumored jedi hunters? Special forces storm trooper?

    But since his acting experience is limited, I'd lean against any sort of main character or Skywalker kin. Could easily be wrong I suppose. Wouldn't be the first time someone was brought into a huge movie based on purely physical background and given a large role (i.e. Orlando Bloom in LOTR)

    I like the idea of him being Daisy's twin a la Jacen and Jaina. Or just a sibling in general.

    He'll have a minor part. At first I thought he would be a stunt double for one of the main characters, but I saw later that he was cast for an actual role. He's very athletically talented and it will be fun to see him in action, whatever role he'll play in.

    They were targeting certain people for their looks for the callbacks for the open auditions. For the callbacks they were targeting both Carrie Fisher-esque women as well as women of a minority ethnicity. So I believe there is the element of smoke and mirrors at work here when it comes to "Rachel" and "Thomas". That being that they used two names for more than two roles.

    I'm pretty sure he won't be a Jedi or a Sith.

    The Pip at Imaginarium and Serkis interview blew two huge holes into my theories. Based off of that Pip is going to have a far smaller role then I thought

    Why do you think that? His parkour skills tell me otherwise. It seems it would be a waste of talent for him not to use those skills.

    Pip as a Solo who gets minimal screentime in episode VII but becomes a major player in VIII. A lot of people have Ridley tagged as a Solo for good reason, she could definitely be Carrie Fisher's daughter. I just don't want to call it as such for one major reason, from my understanding she will be living out of that down AT-AT not exactly where you would expect to find the daughter of two major public figures.

    I don't think Pip will be a Jedi or Sith because I don't foresee there being a lot if any Jedi in VII. I think Luke may have been able to train a couple people in 20 years but the Order has not returned. For now I will accept having no idea who Pip will be just like I have no idea for Clarke.

    I had Serkis as the alien who will first find the box containing Luke's lightsaber and bringing it to Daisy. He could still do that as a "cameo" but I envisioned him having a larger role then that.

    I'm thinking alot along the same lines as you. I wouldn't mind seeing PA as the Solo son but now I'm doubtful as to whether there even will be one or not.

    As for Daisy, I thought and WANTED her to be a Solo, but from the "leaks" I would find it difficult to believe that a Solo daughter is living in some junkyard in the belly of a junked AT-AT.

    And I also doubted even before the leaks and rumors that the NJO would be very far along anyway. In fact, it is my strong belief that there are a bunch of Force attuned individuals in the galaxy struggling by themselves to figure out their abilities and resorting to learning through historic holo-vids (or whatever) just what Jedi or Sith were. Some of these "lostlings" are clumping together into loose clans of dubious motive and perhaps some seek the long lost, and last, Jedi Master Luke Skywalker.

    I'm not saying he won't use his parkour skills, i'm saying i don't he will be a force user. If he's doing motion capture i think he'll be some alien or some such that has strength, agility, mobility greater than any standard human. Parkour chase scene seem popular right now and Jeffrey Jacob Abrams is not new to chase/running scenes.
